"The Heart of Maryland."
Though the weather was miserable,
nn audience that crowded the Lyceum
to the doors saw "Ths Heart of Mary
land" presented at the Lyceum last
nlaht. This stirring drama by Belasco
seems to increase in popularity and
drawing power with each presenta
tion. Tho way !n which It was re
ceived Inst night left no doubt as to
the kind of an impression that it made
on the audience.
The company was most creditable
throughout, the leading roles being
sustained by Herbert Bostwick, Frank
A. Conner, Frederick G. Lewis, Walter
Belasco, Regan Hughston, Mable How

"Janice Meredith," which comes to
the Lyceum theatre tonight. Mr. Ah
rendt came to this country about
eighteen years ago. He had had many
years' experience on the German stage.
He spoke English indifferently and
was cast for character parts In which
his imperfect English made him par
ticularly Interesting.
Today he speaks the English lan
guage as well as any actor on the
stage, with n slight German accent.
This and his pronounced German per
sonality makes him an ideal In the
part ot Colonel Rahl. In stuglng
"Janice Meredith," Frank McKee
made a special effort to select artists
exactly suited to every part. The re

Russell famous, and Judging from the
unbounded praise of both press and
public, Mr, Keenun Is evidently mak
ing himself famous, too. The St. Louis
Republic, In writing of Mr, Keenun,
says: "There is no apparent effort on
the comedian's part to touch the
hearts of his audience, There Is no
striving after effect. But In many ot
his scenes tears conic to the eyes of
the nudlenco almost before tho sinllo
has left their lips,"
